Helping on a Farm

Farmers are in constant need of help.  There are lots of tasks that can be automated now by machinery, but there are some that just have to be done by a person.

Especially if it’s a local farmer and not some giant corporate affair, then they will need help and will probably be very glad to hire you.

Mowing fields, milking cows, feeding horses, planting crops, harvesting crops, separating fruits from trees and plants, shaving sheep, baling hay, etc.

Help Out With Farming

The list goes on and on.  There is so much work to be done on a farm and so few daylight hours.

I had a friend whose girlfriend’s father passed away and he owned a farm.  That was the family’s living and earnings.  So he moved in with them and began tending the farm.  He was so tired.

But he got in pretty good shape!  He would wake up very early to milk and feed the cows.

He would feed the chickens and collect eggs.  Then he’d come to work with the rest of us and continue to work his tail off.  What a life!

Farmers Need Help!

After that, he’d hurry back home so he could do other farm tasks that needed to be done.  I’m not very knowledgeable nor do I have a lot to say about this kind of work.

I just know there is a lot of it to be done and I’ve known a lot of people who’ve made some good weekend money and eased their burdens doing this kind of work.  Think about it!  It’s hard work but good for the soul.
